Yes, I have been to one of the Seven Wonders of the World, and swam, snorkeled and gone in a glass bottomed boat.

The snorkeling was the nicest actually going down towards the coral and seeing those beautiful coloured fish, and even saw a small shark one time.

Highly recommended -every Australian OUGHT to have been here!

The reef is very spcial and deserves to taken proper care of!! The shapes and colours as well as the gtextures of the corals out on the reef are hard to properly describe,so these new underwater cameras are a real treat! On some islands you are actually on the coral without even stepping into the clear and stunning water!! But it kis dead,so you do need to 'get your feet wet' to see the colours and the fabulous sea life which includes some amazing fish!!

That would be something else.
Maybe one day, I can swim very well....so hear's hoping :)

I agree every Aussie should see it once.
Not the Great Barrier Reef, but I have snorkelled near some smaller reefs in Fiji. It was wonderful.

I haven't yet but it is definitely on my to-do list! It looks absolutely amazing.
Snorkelling on the reef off Cape Tribulation was an amazing experience. Giant clams, sea cucumbers, hundreds of colourful fish of every shape and size. Corals in a rainbow of colours and formations. A true wonderland of nature.
Yes, having been fortunate enough in my work to go to Hayman Island several times, have done this. Just beautiful, leisurely swimming, watching the fabulously coloured fish go by!
AND the corals, wow, all different types & colours. Have still got my original piece of branch coral got on my first trip as a small child, staying at the Royal Hayman Hotel, owned by Sir Reg ANSETT. Any broken coral on the beach was collected by staff & left at each door of guests as souvenir; great idea!
Have 'submerged' with Quiksilver Cruises ex Port Douglas as well. THAT was a whole new surreal experience!
I love the GBR & I wish those who've the power would look after it better, so it remains in the best condition possible.
Yes and it was fantastic, definitely a must to put on your Bucket List.

No, I don't swim anywhere anymore., & I didn't go there, when I did swim!
